MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida Division of Emergency Management officials said the COVID-19 drive-thru testing center at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens will not be reopening until Wednesday of Thursday.

Officials said the decision to temporarily close the testing site was due to “extensive water damage,” caused by Tropical Storm Eta, which in some parts of the site reached water depths of 14 – 16 inches.
